Used to Love You - Gwen Stefani
Speed: 96 bpm
Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm, 95 to 100 bpm
The DJ's Take: I wonder how much of this song's current popularity is due to her gig as a judge on a singing show, millennials who remember Hollaback Girl, or Gen X/Y'ers like me who remember her from No Doubt. Maybe it's a combination of all 3. In any case, a cute little pop song the younger females in the crowd should be able to sing along to. Could be kind of fun to blend with Used to Love U - John Legend if you stretch bpm's.
Try mixing with tracks like The Fix - Nelly ft. Jeremih, Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye, Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX, Creep - TLC, Honey - Mariah Carey, Where The Party At - Jagged Edge, What's Luv - Fat Joe, and T.I.'s Ball.
If you're going closer to 100 bpm, try mixing with About You - Trey Songz, You Know You Like It - DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge, Worth It - Fifth Harmony, Stuck On A Feeling - Prince Royce, Electric Feel - MGMT, Sexual Healing - Maxamillion, and Get Low - Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz.
